I’d love to serve Christmas morning breakfast in this charming room.


This lampshade Christmas tree is just so much fun!  I also love that Santa cutout.

Set a Holiday Scene In Your Outdoor Room


A decorated tree outside, and it’s standing by a roaring fire.  Love it!

Aren’t these snowmen just adorable?  She has a good tutorial for making them from burlap and twine.


I would swoon over that window even if it wasn’t decorated so beautifully.  The plaid cushion on the bench makes this look like a perfect place to relax after the Christmas gifts are wrapped.


Rustic Christmas


How about celebrating Christmas morning in a log home?  Doesn’t this look warm and cozy, and I love those huge windows.


Simple and beautiful.  Love the way that buffet is painted, and the Christmas décor is such a serene look.

In Arkansas, we are getting predictions for ice storms.  If I disappear for awhile, you’ll know I don’t have power.  Some of you may recall when we were without power for seven days in 2009.  I hope it won’t be that long again!

I hope you got a little Christmas decorating inspiration from my post today.  It seems that I just began my Christmas decorating, and it won’t be long before I’m taking it all down!  Wishing you a great weekend.  laurie

Laurie, I'd love to spend Christmas morning in that beautiful log home. That room is really cozy and inviting.
Hope you don't get a bad ice storm. We are cold here too. Snuggle up and stay warm……..Sarah

love them all but the buffet is my favorite.. I need to paint mine , so seeing this has sparked an idea for me.

That log home inspires me, not to decorate but to live in one!! Ha! Beautiful pictures.
I hope you don't get hit too badly with the ice storm. I think ice is more dangerous than snow. You see the snow and know it's there, but ice is sneaky and often invisible until you drive over it!

They are all fabulous, Laurie. The Canadian Log Homes image caught my eye. I showed it to J. Yep...he likes that one too.:-)

Do you have ice today? Missed us...for now.

Hi Laurie,

I love catching up on your blog posts- especially enjoying all your Christmas decorating and ideas!

So much inspiration can really be found here, Laurie. I don't have any Christmas décor in Florida yet, just a few items that I bought from Publix. I think I will go to Homegoods today to buy something since your post really inspired me....Christine

I'm thinking I'd like to be sitting in front of one of those fireplaces this morning!

OH Laurie,
These photos are just spectacular!
I hope you have power and the ice is melting. We are frigid cold, mind numbing. It really messes things up. No main st. parade, no cut your own tree etc.
And our heat bill will be out of this world.
Hugs friend,

I really ought to stop looking at more inspirations as I'll never get done what I've planned already. But who can resist? Beautiful pictures and those windows are marvelous!

I hope you keep your power!
